  • Convenient location!

    "Great location, less than 15 minutes to the airport and convenient, equi-distant location in terms of other activities on the island. We didn't want to stay in Princeville because it would have been too far from Waimea Canyon, and we didn't want to stay in Poipu because it would have been too far from the North Shore...voila! Kailua Beach Resort. Room was a standard hotel room, clean, and had a fantastic view of the pool/palm trees/landscaping. Mini fridge came in handy. Beach is unswimmable (which we knew) and lots of little kids at the pool. If you are looking for a quiet resort experience and plan to stay on the grounds the whole time, then this would NOT be the place for you. However, if you just need a comfortable and convenient base camp (like we did), then it fits the bill perfectly. Resort had more amenities than I thought (gym, restaurants), but we didn't take advantage of them since we were always out doing other things. Actually, I take that back; we did have Happy Hour one day from 5-7pm at the lobby restaurant, Shutters. Quick drive to Walmart to pick up necessities (7 mins) as well as to Kapaa for awesome breakfast at Java Kai. Kapaa in general was such a cute town a little drive away - two favorite restaurants were Verde (fish tacos) and Hukilau Lanai (fresh, local, original food). All in all, this hotel room suited our needs well."

  • Pictures don't do it justice.

    "This place exceeded our expectations. Being able to to stay at this beautiful place and also being able to use the Marriotts amenities made it the best of both worlds."

  • Our stay in Kauai

    "We liked the condo a lot, very nicely equipped with a great location - close to everything and yet private and quiet enough. We did not want the feeling of staying in a huge commercialized resort and this was very much what we found. The pools at the other accommodations at the hotel were really nice, very nice to simply be able to walk over and use them. We even got a 10% discount in the hotel restaurants. The beach directly outside the condo and hotel is not swimmable but just next door on the shore is. But as other reviews state - there are so many other awesome beaches and sights that you really should go out and travel and see them rather than staying put. We toured the canyon, the north-shore at Haena was particularly beautiful. We found good food in the Poipu area as well as enjoying the simplicity of the Kilauea Fish Market near the Kilauea light-house. But next time we'd probably opt to buy steaks at Safeway and do some barbequeing. We had an unusual and exceptionally hot week in Kauai in early October. There are a/c units only in the bedrooms. Leaving them on with the doors open to the living rooms worked well enough to keep us comfortable. Unfortunately the clothes dryer isn't vented outside so we couldn't use it while we were there, instead we air-dryed our clothes on the lanai without a problem. The condo is very nice and we'd surely go back and rent again. We liked being on the second floor for privacy aspects. Parking was plentiful and convenient and the condo was quiet and tranquil especially sitting out on the lanai at night listening to the surf and sipping a glass of wine."

  • Great Stay, Great Value

    "Let me start with where we stayed and then why only four stars. He has two properties and we opted for the hotel and not the condo. The reason not 5 stars was because the Four Seasons or the Ritz would be 5 stars, this is an excellent resort though. Your vacation will be what you make it, so I won't tell you how to spend your time and will only talk about the property. Third, this is an incredible value for what you get. I can honestly say you won't find any better accommodations for these prices...... I looked long and hard. It's clean, open, well manicured, and friendly attentive staff. There are 4 pools, I think, and a tropical waterfall in it along with a pool bar. We spent very little time on premise during the day, we left around 6:30 most mornings and found ourselves getting home around 8:30 every night, so I can't speak about lunch. Morning you have 2 options at the hotel, full sit down breakfast with options for menu or buffet. You're going to pay $40 no matter what for 2 adults. It's good, variety of options, fresh and you will find some, if not many, things you like. The other option is coffee and muffin for $6 in the gift shop. This was our option most days as we were on the go, plus we are not the type to eat a 4 course meal for breakfast usually. Dinner options are semi formal dining or bar food. We had both, and the bar food was good, again, above average. The semi formal dining was terrible and fantastic at the same time. My dish was overcooked and really just not good, however my wife's was incredible. Maybe the best plate we had all trip. My advice is order something you like, don't ask the wait staff for recommendations. All that being said, my one dish was the ONLY bad experience I had and it was very easily overlooked. The drinks are poured well, all the bartenders mix drinks the way they should be. They don't water it down or skimp on you. The rooms are clean and kept cool. As you can tell we only use the rooms to sleep and shower in, so all that was perfect. Clean sheets, beds with a plethora of pillows, showers, towels, balcony with chairs and a view of the ocean, and a desk. Everything you need plus some. Nothing old and busted. Really couldn't ask for more. There is beach access to walk along the beach if you like, otherwise Kauai is the most beautiful island of the chain and thank goodness there are no big cities and few people on the island. Enjoy the stay, relax and have fun!"
